Lindstrom & Prins Thomas are the shit

Thought these guys deserved their own thread, there seems to be only a little discussion of them here.

So who else is really feeling these guys lately? "I Feel Space" seems to only be the tip of the iceberg, like Primal Scream's "Loaded", pre-Screamadelica. Between the new album on Eskimo, the "Tribulations" remix and the new Six Cups of Rebel (Lindstrom), dudes are killin it. i'm listening to Six Cups now and the willingness to just let it go plus the production, the instrumentation are so freeing to me. The album sounds like a disco-fied Neu! at times and this whole krautrock vibe is a direction i would love to see this going in. I find myself more than willing to go where they're taking me. Further blowing me away is the PT remix of Mental Overdrive's "Diskodans" on Smalltown Supersound (which needs to be released on vinyl right now, god damn it) - mindblowing 9 minute uptempo mix, just filthy with effects - and Lindstrom's "Plague the Kid II" on Bear Entertainment.

Now I've heard Lindstrom's previous work under the Slow Supreme moniker, and i've enjoyed and even spun out a couple of his tracks. but this, this is different.

who's wit me?!

I've only heard "I Feel Space", but it's my favorite house track in months.

Spencer Chow (spencermfi), Friday, 26 August 2005 06:35 (twelve years ago) Permalink

what's the deal with the new album on eskimo? i remember hearing about it a few months ago, but nothing more. but everything else i've heard by them is indeed the shit. "there's a drink in my bedroom and i need a hot lady" especially.

Lindstrom/Prins Thomas remix of Juan Maclean 'Tito's Way' is awesome in a Disco-Prog kind of way.

their remixes of Chicken Lips "Sweet Cow" and the Freeform Five's "Electromagnetic" are very good too.

Album comes out 14 November. Faves so far:

1 Lindstrøm - "Paaskelyd"
2 Lindstrøm - "Er Bestemor Paa Moten"
3 Blackbelt Andersen Vs Prins Thomas - "Juling i Ringen"
4 Lindstrøm - "Drums of Life"
5 Lindstrøm - "I Feel Space"

2.Er Bestemor Paa Moten = Is grandmother at a meeting
3.Juling i Ringen = Doing cartwheels in the ring

Lindbaek And Lindstrom: Alien In My Pocket is one of my favorites. I had no idea there was an album in the works, I can't wait to hear it.

jeffery (jeffery), Friday, 26 August 2005 14:12 (twelve years ago) Permalink

the album is fantastic, if not as uptempo and fully dancefloor as, say, Thomas' Major Swellings album that was released recently on Noid with the Idjut Boys. Listened to as a whole, it's a superb trip through a more laidback vibe. loving loving loving it. it's due out within another month or so - i got solicited on it maybe a month ago and that was way way in advance. question for someone more knowledgeable: is this the same album that was released in japan earlier in the year?

if the tribulations remix link is still active in the most recent YSI thread, go download it immediately. the bit in the middle where the distorted vocal starts stuttering and then the beat drops underneath is fucking devastating.

i hope there are plans to repress bits and pieces like 'alien in my pocket' because i NEED them. i'm in full lindstrom obsession mode at this point!

i should say the tracks they've remixed instead of "their own tracks". i don't think i've heard any of their original stuff. from their set, the remix of Manuel Gottsching - E2-E4 is super.

I'm not really in the loop with this genre. What would you call it? Trip-house? It's crazy. What else would one check out if they really like this?

For frame of reference, I've also really enjoyed the Isolee record and the Vitalic. I checked all three of these out based on ILM threads.

maurice fulton - yes, but not MU, you should start w/ "life is water for gerbadaisies..." (recorded as "maurice fulton presents boof") and the album recorded as "maurice fulton presents stress"). also maurice's remixes.

possibly the earlier faze action ... anything before moving cities, really. also look for ray mang's work.

some of the artists on bunker and creme. a lot of it is lo-fi techno, so you sort of have to pick and choose but there's quite a bit of loose-limbed italo funk in there.

God, there's a mix of "Sueno Latino" I've never found on CD that's the same as most of the original mixes but has this electric guitar solo in the middle of it that just sounds incredible (and still Mediterranean).

Emperor Machine "Bloody Hell" is my favourite of theirs.

Also check out Padded Cell on Suicide Recordings, they've done a few remixes here and there too. Very good stuff.

Ronan (Ronan), Thursday, 1 September 2005 21:21 (twelve years ago) Permalink

the lindstrom / prins tomas lp on eskimo is very down tempo / jazz funk. i think they felt it should be an albu for listening to rather than a set of club tracks.

lindstrom tends to have two sides to his sound - the tripped out space disco and the noodly muso side. the 'i feel space' 12' demonstrates this to a t (which incidentally he recorded four years ago).

he has a forthcoming 12' coming called 'serious syntoms' which is the rawest thing he's ever done. endlessly repeating, slighty modulating moog bassline, live snare and hi hat and a bit of arp synth. sounds like it was recorded live in one take. mega.

i spent a very drunken night out with prins thomas recently and i get the impressiont that what we have heard so far is only the tip of the iceberg. mad, as they both have families and other jobs to keep them busy too.

i listened to (what i think is) the e2-e4 section again last nite from the set...its hard to say where it begins or ends - I think he's weaving other songs in and out - or perhaps its just a short snippet.

anyway, "Call Me Mr. Telephone"-- is awesome if folks haven't heard. They seems to be heavily influenced by 70's rock but not in a gimmicky way??? he goes kinda fleetwood mac in the middle of that song but its totally nice.

Susan Douglas (Susan Douglas), Friday, 2 September 2005 16:35 (twelve years ago) Permalink

Remixes incoming

https://soundcloud.com/smalltownsupersound/prins-thomas-cicube-remix

Smalltown Supersound will release three remix EPs based off Prins Thomas's Principe Del Norte album.

That record, released last week, saw the cosmic Norwegian producer looking back to the the '90s 'braindance' movement for inspiration, specifically ambient works by The Black Dog, The KLF and The Orb. The latter legends are among the heavy-hitters who contribute versions of Principe Del Norte for the upcoming three-part set.

Minimal star Ricardo Villalobos will also contribute two remixes of "C," and Young Marco, I:Cube and Sun Araw, the Californian psychedelic rocker who appeared on Thomas's epic Paradise Goulash mix, have been tapped for reworks too. Hieroglyphic Being starts off the series with a 12-inch featuring his two takes on album track "D."

The Hieroglyphic Being versions will be available next month, with a release date for the second EP, featuring the Villalobos, Young Marco and I:Cube remixes, yet to be announced. Full details on the 12-inch with Sun Araw and The Orb's submissions are still forthcoming.

It is great but I was a bit disappointed that it wasn't actually all ambient. I guess that was common with late 80s, early 90s ambient too but I was hoping for a fully beatless album.

yeah to me this was okay then drifted into crap modern trance-inflected beats. if you're gonna go ambient, go ambient, otherwise you're just standing at the feet of the gods waiting for a remix album to come out.

I am only just now getting around to Principe Del Norte and it is SO good, probably my favorite solo album of his. sounds a lot more melodic than his other stuff for some reason. in any event, extremely good and totally worth the time investment, even though the messed-up labels don't make it easier to keep track of things.

also I saw him DJ on Friday night in a LA warehouse for 6 hours straight and it was RAD. fun fact: Thomas' set at the dearly-departed Mountain Bar ten years ago (!!!) was my first venture into LA nightlife.

this is sounding very cool

https://assets.boomkat.com/spree/products/433278/large/5053760030515_T11_Image.jpg

Prins Thomas provides a thorough, kraut-ish, cosmic-styled overhaul of Dungen’s Häxan, a soundtrack to the 1929 animation film ‘Adventures of Prince Achmed’

“With ‘Versions By’ Prins Thomas takes Dungen on a journey down a new winding road; 17 minute epics, wide open spaces, Balearic ambience, psychedlia, all things cosmic and Kraut grooves. Or as the sleeve notes remark; "recorded, remixed, rearranged, chopped, screwed, glued and partially reproduced with love by Prins Thomas".

The record is woven together with the same stitch as his seminal mix-albums ‘Cosmic Galactic Prism’ and ‘Paradise Goulash’, creating the perfect flow, way beyond a mix. It’s obvious Prins Thomas has been enjoying himself with the original analogue tapes of the record.

“Dungen has long been one of my favourite bands. Their music is a daily staple in the house, so much so that even my 3 year old daughter recognises any Dungen record from the first few seconds playing. If there's any ‘dream comes true’s’ left, having Joakim (Smalltown Supersound founder) request a remix for them comes close. The tracks in question was the music for the 1929 animation film Adventures of Prince Achmed, the music that later became the Häxan album. With all the possibilities AND the limitations these tapes had it would be easy to get lost on the way… and of course, it DID get totally out of hand and I ended up with over an hour of recorded material. It has to be pointed out, this is NOT a ‘Dungen’ album, but more like an exploration of the raw material. In some places only using a single sound or two to construct something new, in other places just rearranging sections of songs. Hope you all enjoy hearing this record heard through a new set of ears.” – Prins Thomas”

The new single "Shinin" may be his most generic track ever.

Shinin' seems of a part with the Lindstrøm & Christabelle stuff, which I'm cool with. very much looking forward to hearing what he does with Jenny Hval.

Tensions is the more recent Lindstrøm single, and fits in nicely with the more spacey instrumentals. haven't heard anything yet to suggest that the album won't be dope.

I much prefer Lindstrom on his own. Prinz gets pretty fucking interminably noodly - his solo album is perhaps the dullest tenner I ever spent.
